  • Trees from seeds can be a challenge

    Some plants are prolific; some are not.  Dandelion seed floats through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk.   Woody plants can be a bit more elusive.  I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone nor an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath its canopy.  Starting woody plants from seed can be tricky. 

  • Troop 76
  • Want to learn basic embroidery?

    Basic embroidery is going to be taught on Oct. 12 at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Harrison County Extension Office. There is no charge for the class. If you are interested in learning to embroider and have never tried it before, or if you need a refresher course, this is your opportunity. You will need to bring with you a 7” embroidery hoop, embroidery needles and a pair of scissors. If enough interest is shown in this class, an advanced class will be offered at a later date.
